Oral Surgery

Oral surgery often includes the removal of teeth. If a tooth becomes un-restorable you may need it removed to prevent any further problems.

Your dentist will explain the treatment thoroughly beforehand and provide you with a local anaesthetic to numb the area, ensuring you experience no discomfort during the procedure. You will feel pressure, but no pain. If you do feel any pain or soreness, tell your dentist straight away.

The procedure itself is usually over within a few minutes. You will be assessed before leaving the dental surgery and your dentist/dental nurse will go through some post operative instructions on what to do and what to expect after your tooth removal.  If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask your dentist.
